J. Jones, Leach, Yanda, Ngata named to AP All-Pro Team

Jacoby Jones already landed a trip to Hawaii as a Pro Bowl starter because of his remarkable first season as the Ravens return specialist. On Saturday, he topped that when he was one of four Baltimore players named to the Associated Press All-Pro Team.

Jones and fullback Vonta Leach both were voted first-team All-Pros while guard Marshal Yanda and defensive tackle Haloti Ngata garnered second-team honors.

It marks the first time since 2005 that the Ravens didn’t have a defensive player named a first-team All-Pro.

Jones claimed his first All-Pro nod after leading the NFL with three combined kick returns for touchdowns, including two via kickoff returns. He was the first Raven to return multiple kickoffs for touchdowns in a season and career, one of which was an NFL record-tying 108-yarder. He ranked fourth in the NFL in combined kick and punt return yards.

Leach earned his third straight first-team selection, and third overall, after serving as Baltimore’s lead blocker. The Ravens ranked 11th in the NFL in rushing yards and sixth in rushing touchdowns. Leach added 21 receptions for 143 yards.

Yanda started all 14 games he played at right guard on the way to being named a second-teamer for the second time in as many seasons. He didn’t allow a sack in 2012.

Ngata earned his fifth All-Pro selection after being picked to the first team each of the last two seasons. He recorded 50 tackles and five sacks in 15 games (14 starts).
